Things to Know Before Your First Bridal Appointment


Finding the wedding dress of your dreams is an exciting adventure that will become a story you
retell for the rest of your life. At Bel Fiore Bridal, we love creating one-of-a-kind bridal
experiences, so each bride gets a personal suite, seating area, and mirror, granting you a
spotlight entirely on you! Here are a few ways you can help us help you get the most out of your

Shop Early

It can take you anywhere between ten months to a year to find the perfect wedding dress. This
may sound like a lengthy timeline, but it’s important to consider the amount of time it will take to
look through hundreds of options, have your selected gown hand-sewn, and then make any
alterations needed after it arrives. There is no such thing as getting started too early!

Bring Us Your Inspiration

While awaiting your appointment, we encourage you to search for wedding dress inspiration
online and in magazines, and bring us photos of any designs that have caught your eye. This
gives us a sense of your personal style, which helps us show you dresses you’ll like earlier in
your appointment, and helps you turn your bridal vision into reality much sooner.
Pro tip: Pinterest is practically a wedding dress playground.


The most efficient tip to trying on bridal gowns is to look during your appointment as similar as
possible to what you’ll look like on your wedding day, so that we can prevent any unintentional
pops of color or textures distracting from the look and feel of the dresses. We recommend that
you come to your fitting wearing undergarments that are strapless or seamless, and white or
matched to your skin tone.


One of the best ways to guarantee an easy, exciting wedding dress shopping experience is to
bring a few of your closest friends and family along to your appointment. You’ll love being
surrounded by trusted opinions to help you find the perfect gown, and then celebrate with you
when you do. That being said, to avoid getting overwhelmed by too many comments, we
recommend that you select the guests you invite carefully.
